Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: I think Jerry might have had Attention Deficit Disorder

Well, speed is the regular medicine for "ADD," and Jerry loved his coke, so maybe that cancelled it out lol. But seriously, I have a friend who used to say "Thank God for mental illness." The majority of the world's greatest artists and thinkers throughout history would have been or are diagnosed with immeasurable amounts of "mental illnesses." 99% of musicians could probably be clinically considered "bipolar" or "suffering from ADD." Craziness and creativity are often mistaken for each other.

Also I just wanted to say that for a number of reasons I would hate for a woman to have to "hide" her sex on here, or any other related forum. Seeing as the taping/trading world is seemingly so male-dominated, I personally really like knowing that a poster in discussions is a woman, as the female perspective is often lacking in these musical discussions. The same goes for racial differences, to a degree. The tape trading world is seemingly so dominated by white males. I'm someone who in their personal life prefers to surround themselves with friends of various races, sexual orientations, etc, because I love hearing the different perspectives. I think it would be better for all if there were more diversity in these types of discussions.

Plus it'd be a damn shame for a woman to feel the need to "hide" her sex because of a bunch of horny OCD GD collectors hitting on her all the time.
